Voting within TCDA - how timely!
The Board of Directors is bringing before the voting membership consideration in allowing Retired members of TCDA to also cast their vote. This would be a constitutional change and therefore requires a referendum. Please click here to cast your vote as to whether or not Retired members may be included in the future voting membership of TCDA. This referendum will be open for voting through midnight December 31, 2016. Active members and Past Presidents are eligible to vote.
TCDA celebrated 61 Years in San Antonio at our 2016 Convention on July 21-23, 2016!
TCDA was founded in 1955. The first two TCDA Conventions were held in Dallas, and all Conventions since have been in San Antonio. There were no elected officers until 1957; the first two Boards served for only one year. Since 1957, Boards have served two-year terms. TCDA thanks former Executive Director Marvin J Pollard for his help in gathering information from TCDA's early years.
